About the property

Apartment in Antibes, Cote D'Azur - Central Location, 4 Mins Walk To The Beach

The property was totally renovated in Winter 2009 to the highest specification. It is on the first floor of a building that dates back to the 16th century, the small balcony overlooks the Provencal market where 2 people can sit and soak up the atmosphere. Inside are exposed beams, air conditioning and double glazing, keeping it cool and quite in Summer, warm and quite in Winter. The apartment of 54 sq.m. is tastefully decorated simply white with original artwork, a old artisan carved inscription dated 1683 was found during renovation and is now a wall feature. The ceiling's are 3.7 meters high so a great feeling of space. Can sleep up to 5 people, 3 in one separate en-suit bedroom with mezzanine and 2 in a huge lounge, again with mezzanine. The kitchen is open American style along one wall. Car parking can be arranged.

About Geoff

Hi, my name is Geoff, I moved to Antibes in 1974 and started working in the yachting industry, day work and crewing. I have been running a yacht painting business since the late 70's. I have a fantastic local knowledge of the area and consider myself very friendly, helpful, informative and normally have a 'nothing to much trouble' approach to things. I speak English and French, my wife speaks English, Chinese 3 dialects, and Malay. Working in the yachting industry has given me a large circle of friends of different nationality's world wide. I have travelled a lot spending time away from my home base so I know what people expect and would like when they are away from home.

Geoff purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Geoff chose Antibes

I purchased the apartment after renting it since 1981, during the Winter 08/09 it was totally renovated, everything new. It is now rented for holiday lets, family and friends as well as using it ourselves when our main house is rented out. The thing I love is the convenience and location, it's on the first floor and right in the middle of old Antibes town where you have shops, restaurants, bars and night life, so no driving, most important no noise problems as it has double glazing with air-con. I have lived in Antibes since 1974 and consider myself very knowledgeable on the area, so for local information, just ask!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks Geoff for letting us rent your lovely apartment. We had a fantastic weeks holiday. The apartment is perfectly placed in the heart of the old town, overlooking the Provençal Market. We loved the location within easy each of everything. The flat is really well appointed, and although we spoiled ourselves by eating out all the time, we could have prepared cordon blu meals with the equipment available! The flat was quiet inside due to the presence of double glazing, however we enjoyed absorbing the atmosphere below by opening the French windows. The air conditioning in both rooms was appreciated allowing the room inhabitants to control the temperature themselves. We fell in love with the barman at the Baccus bar just below the apartment, I would encourage future visitors to pop in here, what is not to love when the wine is cheaper than cola. Thanks again Geoff, I hope we will return someday.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This is the second year in a row that the two of us have stayed at this apartment. You could not get a better location in the middle of the Old Town market in Antibes, surrounded by excellent restaurant's and within easy walking distance of beech & public transport (we did not have a car). The apartment is clean with all the facilities that we needed to use as a base, including a couple of nights in cooking produce from the market. Geoff the owner is a top bloke who could not have been more helpful with his local knowledge. This apartment suited our particular needs and we intend to return in the future.
